Stop SignAt Citation Nation we fight to get your traffic ticket dismissed!
In Florida, any vehicle approaching a stop sign has to come to a complete stop at the limit line or marked line present before the stop sign; if there is not limit line then the driver must come to a complete stop at the entrance to the intersection.
The penalties for running a stop sign are typically monetary and they can be significantly higher depending on the circumstance of the charges, such as if the stop sign was in a school zone or construction zone.
The driver of a vehicle approaching a yield sign shall, in obedience to such sign, slow down to a speed reasonable for the existing conditions and, if required for safety to stop, shall stop before entering the crosswalk on the near side of the intersection, or, if none, then at the point nearest the intersecting roadway where the driver has a view of approaching traffic on the intersecting roadway.
A violation of this section is a noncriminal traffic infraction, punishable as a moving violation under the Florida Statutes s. 316.123.
